SS1 colander

I would throw that one and either get a good second hand one or I think Nigel at QRG had done some new ones earlier this year. Not cheap but you don't want to be thinking about it while cornering on the limit!

Sabre TI now on Copart

Hope this goes o.k. for you. Be interesting to see what you think after a second look.
If the basics are o.k. the cosmetics can be put right.

I agree. Where it is means a bigger market, but it is still a bargain for what it is.

1800 TI for sale in the Netherlands

Too cheap for these cars. Fantastic drive with excellent performance. Galvanized chassis and fiberglass body, so last for ages. Mechanics fairly simple. What's not to love? I know people will say the looks, but it's an eighties classic which turns heads these days and at shows when people remind you...

SS1-C686CCR

When I did mine last year I had to use compressors to get the springs back in, even then it was a fiddle. When you say bind them, what do you use? If you could compress them tie them up safely and take off the compressors it would definitely be an easier job. Just cut the binding once all in place. ...

Beware the car thieves

Some nasty ones reported in Solihull, Tamworth and Coleshill this week where thieves have targeted Golf GTI's and Range Rovers. In all cases violence has been used or threatened and in one local case a Lady was dragged from her car in a Supermarket car park while a group of youths drove it off. A tr...

Hello from the Midlands!

Welcome Phil. I am just down the road in Coleshill. That's a cracking car that you've bought.
You may see my yellow one around the back roads and perhaps Middleton Hall from next April.
Mike.

Would need to replace the hydraulics, tyres etc. Good chassis. Bodywork o.k. I have an unfited stainless petrol tank an...
